Now that things are really picking up - restaurants, bars, etc - I’m spotting many more watches in my neighborhood than in previous years. Certainly a far cry from conclusive scientific evidence, but it at least appears as though folks really did get into watches this past year...?
Gotta spend those stimmy checks on something; why not watches?

Stimulus checks? Fucking peasants. What ya’ll should have done is start a “pain and rehabilitation” clinic in a strip mall that doesn’t exist but is somehow addressed in Hialeah, Florida (the ass-crack of Miami) and claim millions in PPP mula.

I mean, I’m not saying that’s how I got my COVID watches or anything, but….

You got a funny story to share with the forum.

Meanwhile I ruined my Super-Duper Fireball XL5.

Luckily, I am tight with the manufacturer and I am already planning on my Super-Duper Fireball XL7. Only normies and plebs will get the 6.

Also, why didn't you say hi? Always like a forum meetup. Nice to be with somewhat likeminded individuals.
I'm too "Pissypalian" to buy the 7. It's just too ... too (said with a Thurston Howell III lockjaw). I like OLD wine, OLD watches, OLD money, and OLD ... opps ... not sure I can say that outside of CE or Dumb Threads ;-)

You could have been one of the 8 at that alumni meetup (although not USC, a tad further to the east northeast). I don't know many first names here (maybe three). I'd never connect the dots ... or the watches.

Lots of things are up ... way up.

A few of you know that I retired. Well, the last house I worked on was the design for a major addition to a 1931 Moorish Mediterranean on the California coast. We added a great room, five bedrooms, two courtyards, a 6 car garage, a guest house, and servants' quarters. They got a bid late in 2019 and were to start in the spring of 2020. They waited due to COVID. New bids are coming in now. On average they are up 78%. I imagine the area has a lot to do with it.

I did -- as a favor -- fly down to meet with the builders. I noticed all of them were wearing good watches. Not great, but good.
